Re: New Factions ideas

I love the idea of a new faction, and I think the lizards and/or other former Scourge hosts are an obvious basis. For one, they're already in the fluff. Second, they have an obvious and natural motivation to get involved. I suspect that if they do introduce another (non-human) faction, this will be ...

Re: Dread's RES Resistance Fleet first try 1250/1500 pts

Hello, fellow Resistance Admiral! I meant to comment on this list ages ago, but...life happens. I have a few thoughts, but first a couple of quick notes: 1) All of my thoughts are on this are largely theoretical. I have exactly ONE game under my belt at this point. 2) As posted, this list is a bit h...

Re: confused about low power

So you could even build an all artillery cruiser with 2x artillery banks and 2x artillery turrets and fire all of the weapons on standard orders. -One turret for standard orders -One turret for subsystem network -One bank for low power -All the rest of the banks through linked Thus, you could even ...

Avoiding IP Landmines

Hello, admins!

I have a quick question re: IP. I am working on an analysis post, and wanted to include a table comparing the stats of various races' ships. Is this allowed under IP protection rules? If not, how much and what kind of information can I include in a post?

Thanks!

Re: Dread's UCM first try with Web Army Builder

That is certainly A LOT of infantry. I'm a big fan of boots on the ground, but 22 stands of infantry at 1500 is probably overkill. Furthermore, you don't have enough transpo for all of them, which means that some of them would have to walk on. In the new rules, anything not in an aerial transport (a...

Re: confused about low power

Since this seems like the proper thread for it, I have two questions. Does Subsystem Network activate off of low power? As an example, if I fire an artillery turret using Low Power, can I then fire a second artillery turret? Secondly, does Subsystem Network grant an "implicit link" for the purposes...

Re: confused about low power

It isn't the most clearly-written rule in the book, for sure. I read the "instead of CAW" part to be referring to the core rule that allows you to fire a CAW in addition to any main weapon(s) allowed by whatever order you are on, NOT that you HAVE to be in a position to actually use the CAW. Ex.: On...
